According to Jacqui Johnston TNT Sameday Manager in Aberdeen there are three principal industries in the Granite City - oil, oil and oil! Hardly surprising then that the bulk of the thousands upon thousands of superfast deliveries made by Aberdeen's TNT Sameday team have a connection to the black gold extracted from beneath the North Sea
"When you're working in the oil capital of Europe it goes with the territory that the vast majority of all our deliveries are oil-business related and it's vital that we get the job completed on time every time," said the bubbly brunette, now into her fourth year with TNT
"The knock-on effects of us failing to deliver on time don't bear thinking about. If we're carrying important equipment it could mean the difference between a helicopter getting airborne or being grounded, oil platform workers getting offshore or back on dry land or an oil rig continuing to drill or having to shutdown." The four-strong Aberdeen team has literally hand delivered critical nuts and bolts to an oil enterprise in Malta and, on another occasion, chartered a plane to fl y components to a customer in the UK. Helicopter companies based at the city's heliport at Dyce are also big-users of TNT Sameday's expertise
Oil is undoubtedly the biggest factor in Aberdeen's business make-up but TNT Sameday also number household brand names such as Orange, Royal Bank of Scotland, Dell Computers and Baxters Food Group among its customer base
Delivering as far afi eld as the Orkneys, the Shetland Isles and even Iceland, Jacqui loves the diversity of each working day with TNT Sameday
"Everyday is challenging. No two days are ever the same and it does get the adrenalin pumping when you know every consignment is time sensitive and of great importance to the customer." So why is TNT Sameday one of the leading players in the express courier market in Aberdeen? Jacqui enthused: "It's our quality of service but it's also the fact that we have local knowledge that's built into a framework of a national and international company that people know they can trust."
